    Derik,
    How come you have to go hang on, you could just get a simple overflow and a sump just for your skimmer, i got a 1500gph overflow for like 70$, or do you not have room for a sump ?

    You're in the same boat I'm in Volitan. I work offshore here in Newfoundland for 4 - 6 weeks at a time, leaving the girlfriend home to tend to the tank. Not a good thing to have to do at times.

    IMO the best hang on is a Lifereef. I have tried a bunch of others. THe Lifereef doesn't need constant attention and does a great job. It is pricey, but the venturi never needs cleaning. I just empty the cup as needed and clean the neck bi-weekly and then once in a blue moon I actually take the skimmer off and flush it out. HTH

    Yes, its a hang on. I got it directly from Lifereef in the States. Check out there website. I'm not sure of the address but it shouldn't be hard to track down.
